Nettle is a software instrument that explores the unique and relatively under-explored world of scanned synthesis. The timbre of the sounds you create constantly evolve, as the waveform produced is made by tracing (scanning) the positions of masses that are always in motion. These masses are set into motion when you press a key on your MIDI controller - this simulates the action of a hammer striking the connection of masses. Through the user's manipulation of the masses, the springs that connect them, and the hammer that excites them, a wide range of dynamic, almost sentient, sounds are possible.

Features include:

  • 32-voice polyphony.
  • Fully automatable knobs.
  • Filter (low-pass, high-pass) and reverb available for signal processing.
  • Four LFOs and ADSRs available for modulation, along with two sources for modulation via your MIDI controller.
  • Built-in presets, as well as the ability for users to save and modify their own presets.
  • A randomize button.

Nettle can be downloaded from my website as well as via KVR. Please feel free to contact me for any questions and feedback.

Scanned synth, not super deep but it's definitely a fresh approach. And free, too.

Idk what's up with the other reviewer that gave this one star, completely ignorant.

Sorry I found nothing interesting or unique about this snyth. There are various other synths, including free ones, which do a lot more.

The concept of scanned synth is less well known and there are no manual for it so it might be hard to get start with it. However there are not so many parameters so after a few tweaks with the presets you can get the idea rather intuitively.

The builtin HPF/LPF is limited that an external EQ is required to produce good sound, and I recommend also replace the builtin reverb by a better one. It can also benefit from a chorus effect plugin. The sound it can produce is noisy but warm, and can make very intrigued sound. A very creative free plugin indeed.

"We created a custom preset to import some dynamic expression
in a short audio session, hoping you'll like such kind of timbre.
Nettle plays the main aggressive syncopated pattern here ..."
